Monarch

Destined for adversity,
her crimson wings
burn wildly as she takes flight.
She takes to the sky
in her coal-colored dress—
turning flaws to ash,
freeing herself from the tears
that try to extinguish her.

Most have tried to
tame her flame,
only adding to its inferno.
And like a butterfly,
she’s admired
when she passes by—
scorching hearts and minds,
advocating change in our lives.

Colorfully sound

In a world of black and white,

one does not need to see color—we can feel and hear it.

An artist,

can harness everything—even for a brief moment.

Emotions from words

can paint our worlds.

A collaboration

of ingenuity and imagination

can be a lyrical creation.
